8-1 is not better than 12-1. #advanced math :)

My advice - go to KC and see if prices fall at the last minute. If they do, you buy the cheapest seat in the arena and then try to move to one of the seats in lower level that are still empty because of late arriving Kansas fans. If prices don't fall, watch game in bar near arena.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||No shots from corner||
I used to play at Waterman Gym my freshman year - 1973-74. It was the closest gym to Alice Lloyd before CCRB opened a few years later. You could not shoot from the corner, or your shot would be blocked by the track that overhung.
In answer to an earlier comment about Yost, I attended a game there in 1967 against Purdue as a 6th grader with my brother who was a freshman. The team wasn't very good - it was the first year after Cazzie left and the last year before the games moved to Crisler. Purdue won, as I recall, with Herm Gilliam and Billy Keller. I had heard about the bats and birds flying around inside, but I didn't see any. I had previously been to a wrestling meet there a few years before.

The same ticket is for both games, so one you leave the arena a buyer won't be able to get back in with your ticket.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Individual session tickets||
Tickets for individual sessions are currently available on Stubhub. I assume they are also available on other secondary market sites. I expect that the B1G will offer single session tickets to the public as it gets closer to the event and all-session tickets do not sell out.

Burke usually doesn't get that many minutes, but Bradley Beal sat out with an injury.
|21 weeks 2 days ago||Donate your extras to charity||
I often do that with extras I have for games with no buyer interest in the secondary market. If you itemize your taxes, the value of the deduction for the donation (at face value) is more than what the market will pay. I usually try the local Boys and Girls Club or Big Brothers and Big Sisters.

Rickey Green did not break his hand in the second game of the 1977 tournament. They beat Dick Vitale's UD team in that game and were upset by Cornbread Maxwell and UNCC in the elite 8 in the next game. Green was not injured.

No depth though.

I generally expect it to relate to the fomer Michigan swimmer and 1976 Olympic bronze medalist of that name. I am old.

the minor was not aware that the defendant was a police officer, so the "position of authority" concept was not present.
|43 weeks 9 hours ago||I think replay speeds up the game in baseball||
Before replay, managers would come out and argue the calls for no real benefit, other than "working the umps." The first year of replay, the managers would come out and argue like before , stalling for time while the bench coaches would check the replay. Soon enough, they all figured out they didn't need to go through that charade and the umps let the benches take a little while to diecide whether to challenge or not.
|44 weeks 1 day ago||Numbers in chart are not correct||
The data is not correct, though Michigan still leads for most 1st round picks. Michigan has 25, Indiana 23 (not 21), Ohio St. has 22 (not 17) and Maryland has 18 (not 15). I didn't double check MSU.
My source was http://www.databasebasketball.com/draft/draftfirst.htm?lg=N for draft through 2011, then went to Wikipedia for 2012-16 which meant adding Alex Len for Maryland, Victor Oladipo, Cody Zeller and Noah Vonleh for Indiana and JJ Sullinger and DeAngelo Russell for Ohio State.

Tom Cheney of the Washington Senators struck out 21 Orioles in a 16 inning game in 1962.
|50 weeks 3 days ago||Having lived in American Samoa for 3 years||
I agree. The biggest benefit will be for recruiting players in the 50 states that are of Polynesian descent. There are very few D-I players that actually played HS football in American Samoa. Nearly all of the Samoan NFL and D-I players went to HS in Hawaii or on the mainland, though there are a few exceptions.

|51 weeks 4 days ago||baseball is better choice by far||
Even without CTE issues, baseball should be first choice. Jeff Samardzifa and Calvin Johnson were all-American receivers the same year. With Samardzija's guaranteed contract, he will make more over his entire career as a middling starter than Megatron (surefire HOF) made over his, not counting the possibility of another contract for Samardzija when the current one expires.

He also tripped a Louisville player. Refs saw that one and gave him a flagrant.
